My Arch Rock Panorama (above) was chosen as one of the 25 Top Photos of 2018 on Flickr, out of 400-500 million uploaded photos. This is largely due to your support, and I want to thank you.

This honor has an awfully lot to do with how many people are generous with their time, faves, and comments. No one would have even noticed without all kind feedback I have received, so I want to thank you all for your support. It is appreciated!

Cheers, and good shooting to all in 2019.

Waye Pinkston

This is my one and only panorama of the aurora, taken in Signaldalen, Norway. The scene was just too wide for the lens I had, so I took a series on panorama shots with a 24 mm lens vertical. I really didn't have any hope this would work, so I never even bothered to process it until yesterday. Who knew a panorama of the aurora would even work with the lights moving around? Not me! Anyway I processed it just to see and was pleasantly surprised. 9 images. 24 mm lens, f 1.4, 10 seconds (too long!), and ISO 10,000. Canon 1Dx, Rokinon 24 mm 1.4 lens. And we get a peak of the Milky Way, yeah!

Landscape Astrophotography Tutorial now available!

A number of people have asked me if I had ever considered making Milky Way post processing videos and selling them online. I have not made a video, but I have spent the last year creating an extensive teaching tutorial in a slide show pdf format (Adobe Personal Document Format). This covers the process from acquiring images through image processing. There are over 600 slides/pages and the cost is $79 USD. If you are interested, just sent me an email using the "Contact Me" tab in the menu bar at the top of my Website Payment is by PayPal, and then I will give you a Dropbox link to download the tutorial. You can also send me a DM message here. Also, any updates or additions will be free. If you are interested in learning more just go to Tutorials.

This is one of my favorite arches in the Alabama Hills of California. I In the spring you can get the Milky Way nicely framing the arch. We are used to using landscape elements to frame the sky, but at night you can use the Milky Way to frame the landscape. For perspective, the arch is about 3-4 meters tall. Low Level Lighting was used both under the arch and for the front of the arch.

A number of people have asked me if I had ever considered making Milky Way post processing videos and selling them online. I have not made a video, but I have spent the last year creating an extensive teaching tutorial in a slide show pdf format (Adobe Personal Document Format). Why choose this format instead of a video or a book? Well, 2 main reasons: First, I myself get frustrated trying to follow a cursor around on YouTube teaching videos. I have to play the videos over and over. This tutorial has each step illustrated so you can proceed step-by-step and go at your own pace. An image is taken through the entire process in a simple editing approach, and is then repeated in a non-destructive processing approach. Second, this format makes it easy to include innumerable images and screenshots. I cover the logic of what I am doing as well as the steps themselves. This covers image acquisition in the field through processing, and also includes Image Stacking and Panoramas. Also included is the RAW image file used in the tutorial so you can follow along and practice using the same image. Anyway, there are over 600 slides/pages and the cost is $79 USD. If you are interested, just sent me an email using the "Contact Me" tab in the menu bar at the top of my Website Payment is by PayPal, and then I will give you a Dropbox link to download the tutorial.
